PS5: Horizon Zero Dawn & Killzone Shadow Fall Are Backward Compatible, Save Files Can Also Be Transferred
In a tweet published in recent hours, Guerrilla Games revealed that two of its PlayStation 4 games, namely Horizon Zero Dawn and Killzone Shadow Fall, will be fully playable on PS5 thanks to the backward compatibility feature.
Guerrilla Games is another studio of Sony that confirms the full cooperation of its games with PlayStation 5. Players cannot only turn on productions from the next generation, but also get the opportunity to transfer the save files of the game to the next-gen console.
To be more specific, in addition to being able to be played without too many problems, the European studio explains that the save files of both Horizon Zero Dawn and Killzone Shadow Fall can be transferred from PlayStation 4 to PS5. In case you have not completed the adventures yet and if you have chosen to buy a next-gen console from Sony, don’t worry as from next week you can move everything.
Ready… Set… Play! #PS5

As for performance, Guerrilla Games is not talking about the framerate of Horizon Zero Dawn, which may have remained like the one on PS4 (or PS4 Pro), while Killzone Shadow Fall is capable of running at 60 FPS. At the moment we do not know why the team has not released information on the FPS of the title of the protagonist Aloy.
Both Horizon Zero Dawn and Killzone Shadow Fall are available on PlayStation 4. We also remind you that Horizon Forbidden West is still in development for PS5, due out in the second half of 2021.
